Michelle Obama event rescheduled due to inclement weather: My mother and sister came up to our house to join us for this book event. It was cancelled mid-day on Thursday but they had already board the Amtrak train en route to our house. They continued north and spent the snowy weekend with us.

Early Birthday Celebration: Yesterday afternoon we drove up to visit our daughter and son-in-law so my sister and mom could see Ian, our grandson. We had a quick lunch of beef soup and biscuits followed by an early birthday celebration for me. We made it home in the daylight before the temperatures tumbled, again.

The Wisdom of Ian: Show your happiness and delight when you see someone you love and give them big, full-body hugs to warm their hearts.
Bingley the snow dog: Who knew? Bingley loves the snow and plays outside for long periods of time before coming in with small and large snowballs attached to his feathery fur. It is a delight to watch him play. (Not sure if my video will play.)

Books: What books? I finished the audiobook of An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green. Loved it! And I'm currently reading the children's classic The BFG by Roald Dahl. Cute.
